“What else is love but understanding and rejoicing in the fact that another person lives, acts, and experiences otherwise than we do…?” - Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 – 1900). Nietzsche’s definition of love encompasses not just the actual emotion of being in love, but also uncovers the truth that love requires an active consideration and appreciation of diversity. In short, love requires action. The juxtaposition of the mural and the individual works by each artist allows viewers to gain insight into the unique talents of each artist and also understand their shared message on the importance of taking action to make a difference.
The “Love Requires Action” mural project was presented by thegluenetwork.com, an organization whose aim is to “bring people together to make a difference.” The purpose of thegluenetwork.com is to create a community of purpose-driven individuals with a passion for sharing their time, talents, and resources to benefit the lives of others.
